The Tucson is offered in front-wheel and four-wheel drive arrangements, and is available in one of two trim levels: GLS, and Limited. Power comes from a new 176-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine mated to either a six-speed manual transmission, or a six-speed automatic transmission featuring SHIFTRONIC control. The Tucson features low rolling resistance silica tires, Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS), and an eco indicator with automatic transmission models to promote fuel-efficient driving behavior. Standard safety features include six-airbags, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake assist, electronic stability control with traction control, and active front head restraints.
The 2010 Hyundai Tucson is completely redesigned, with all new standard features.
